PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT - Emergency/Urgent Care patients, outpatients and visitors to wear masks inside all Niagara Health sites

Posted by Niagara Health on Wednesday, May 20th, 2020

Niagara Health is taking further precautions to ensure the safety of our patients, staff and physicians during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Beginning Wednesday, all Emergency/Urgent Care patients, as well as all outpatients and visitors, are required to wear a mask at all times while in hospital, including common areas, elevators, waiting room areas and in patient rooms while visiting.

Patients and visitors are asked to bring their own masks. Niagara Health will provide people masks if they do not have one. If someone brings a mask that is wet, damaged or soiled, they will be asked to discard it and will be provided a new one.

We also encourage the community to remember the importance of meticulous hand hygiene when putting a mask on and taking it off, and to practice physical distancing to keep everyone safe.
